Women are already considered bad drivers, especially moms have so much on mind. They are so busy thinking about each member of the family, their needs and issues that even make them forget about their own needs and problems. It is the reason they cannot concentrate on things like driving and make mistakes. Driving is a job of care that even the skilled driver make mistakes, especially in metropolitan cities. It is risky for the mothers to go on the road and accused of a DUI but a few behaviour changes can prevent them
The surveys and blogs of the mothers have provided the evidences of the mistakes among which the troubling behaviour of the kids is the top reason to make the mothers take terrible decisions on the road that proved dangerous. The mommy’s bad moments have shown that there are some common errors that moms make and those small mistakes can be extremely harmful while on the road.
Moms have too many commitments and they are always doing more than one task at a time even while driving. Multitasking at home can also cause the mess but while driving it is a disaster. Most of the mothers are stressed due to their children and they cannot concentrate on one thing at a time. While driving, they have to decide on changing lane or speeding they are always distracted by the thoughts that is totally unsafe. A way to avoid it to chew a gum that also reduce the stress.
Need to Relax
The daily exhaustion and tiredness is enough to make a mom drive badly while lack of sleep is the addition to it. Moms do not sleep enough and they always need to take a nap or relax. They get up in the middle of the night for the sake of the baby and sleep even less than a truck driver. That tiring routine is not good for driving. Make sure you have a seat that is comfortable and also keep you active and also open the window to get the fresh air to relax.
Using Mobile Phones
Even if they are not using their phone, they are having Bluetooth devices in their ear and taking on the phone. They have to give directions on call and manage so much more. Cell phone cause almost 25% of the road accidents. Some of the modern moms are checking emails, sending updates and texting on mobile phone also. It is a bad habit to use them while driving especially for the moms as they get stressed and distracted from the phone call also. They should say no to the mobile phone while driving even when it is the husband.
Attending the child
You cannot leave the child unattended in the car to move and put their finger everywhere. It is important to install a baby seat in the car and fasten the belt to keep them in place. Crying baby is also heart-breaking and discomfort so you should have a music or cartoon screen in the car for the baby
Adjustment of side and rear view mirrors
Like a professional driver, moms should adjust their mirrors at the right angle. Kids often misadjust the mirrors while playing and it can cause trouble. Also, give indicators on every turn.
Running on Wrong Fuel
Fuel can make a difference in driving. Premium fuel make the car drive better while the moms do not even check the fuel while going out as they are always in hurry.
